Budget Kindle Fire HD Rumors Denied by Amazon

March 22, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Kindle Fire HD was one device that pushed out through the doubts and emerged a winner. When most thought that Amazon’s product might not gather the light due to the presence of the iPad and other high-level rivals, the Kindle Fire HD rose to fame, especially with its low price being a good booster.

Amazon, riding on the success of the Kindle Fire HD, might push out a sequel this year. Especially since Apple might head out with their iPad Mini 2, having a rival to challenge might be a good thing for the market.

But for the new Kindle Fire HD sibling, the price would matter a lot. We have heard rumors of Amazon’s 7-inch slate being budget-friendly, so in that case, the company might compromise on some features to knock off the extra bucks.


The new 7-inch offering from Amazon might go for a mere $99, which is way down the price belt. The new Kindle Fire HD might have a 1280 x 800 resolution display with the same TI processor that we see in the current Kindle Fire lineup.

Specifications-wise, the new Kindle might not be able to hold fort with the upcoming iPad Mini 2, but when it comes to the price, the Amazon product is a nice alternative to the expensive Apple offspring. But the Apple tablet might not roll out amidst big money, because the Cupertino-based company will be looking to rope in customers that aren’t willing to pay high.

But although rumors of Amazon striking at a low price belt is high, a spokesperson for the online retailer said that these rumors were inaccurate and that the company is already at the lowest price points for that device.
